Learning disability charity Brandon Trust is looking for new trustees to join its Board. In return for your commitment and expertise, there’s a real opportunity to develop your skills, influence decision-making and enhance people’s lives as part of a talented, collaborative team.
Brandon exists to enable adults and children with learning disabilities and autism to live the lives they choose. We work across the south of England, providing high-quality, individualised support that is genuinely life-enhancing.

Receive training and development in a range of areas, including: governance and leadership, key technical matter (e.g. finance, reporting, legal) and specific charity sector areas,

Gain unique insight into a key national sector at a time of great change,
Develop your skills and apply them to real-world challenges,

You’ll need to commit to the equivalent of approximately 10 days a year for meetings in Bristol as well as London and other areas where we work, all of which are diarised well in advance. You’ll also need to read board papers, which can be managed flexibly in your own time. We will reimburse reasonable expenses.
